It seems pretty ironic, doesn’t it? Creating a self-help book about how self-help culture ultimately causes more burnout these days. But Caroline Donner’s part-guide, part-memoir actually strongly accomplishes providing the reader reassurance, laughs, and genuine help for getting better. Caroline humbles herself so honestly in this book, bringing her down to all of our anxiety-filled levels. For those of you feeling extra tired of late–especially considering the whirlwind few years we’ve had since this pandemic started–this will be a great book for you to pick up whenever you’re down. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

In this happy little gem of a guide, Cleese explores the very important role of the unconscious mind in the creative process, the tortoise mind vs. the hare brain and why indecision, being stuck, and problem solving are best left to the natural processes of the unconscious which has a language and timing all its own. Wonderful insight for anyone striving for a little more imagination, artistry, or inventiveness in their times. ~ Reviewed by Nancy Scheemaker

A wonderful, and thought provoking, book about our finite life as humans. If we live to be eighty years old, we’ll have had four thousand weeks to grow, age, and everything in between. Burkeman explores ways we should think about our time, pulling in wisdom and thoughts from many different sources, be it philosophers, spiritual practitioners or time-management gurus. In an age when social media, combined with the ease of global travel, makes our bucket lists longer, and our possibilities endless, he brings insight into the many ways we can stop ourselves from going mad with FOMO, and instead take joy in the things we do have time for. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

That, more or less, is our allotted time on earth. Yet many of us act as if our time is limitless, while conversely trying to manage it to the nth degree. Burkeman offers potent tips to make us stop looking at the clock, and start realizing that the only time we have is right now. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
